RAPIDO IS EXTENDING its compact C range for the 2022 season, introducing an island-bed model that, at 6.59m long, is the shortest island-bed vehicle the French firm makes. Another new model, the 854f, features a rear double bed that drops down over a U-shaped lounge. Rapido is also bringing out six special models for its 60th anniversary, all with an inbuilt vacuum cleaner.

Itineo A-classes now include the Nomad, a sub-range of three compacts, while Spirit Edition adds the low-profile MC740, SB740 and PC640.

The only addition in the Dreamer van conversion range, the D51 Select, has a double bed that folds back to provide a clear storage area.
